“Aria is a hands-free remote that recognizes your finger movements from the wrist. You wear it, calibrate it and it will work. Aria takes advantage of a brand new set of sensors capable of detecting different finger tapping, flicking and other movements. You then decide which gesture will do what with our configuration app.”
